       A feeling... in random intervals that I have. Just looking for... nothing, actually. Sharing I suppose. And it's also pretty much the only thing I've written in a time... so here ya go.

    dotsA Portrait of A Maskdots

    Such shallow beauty in those blank eyes.
    They look out at me, haunting with their gaze.
    The people pass by, remarking on the portrait's beauty
    And I stand staring, crying
    Because nothing of true beauty is captured.
    Yes, the lines are perfect,
    And the expression one of flawless content.
    Yet there is nothing that hints of a mystery beneath the surface
    Nothing that tells of the potential depth.
    It is only a perfect mask.
    Hiding a pained face,
    And all of the despairing thoughts
    Which make her human.
